The Kenya Kwanza Coalition and Azimi are both using Nairobi County as a battleground. These alliances, which have a history of effective campaigning, will clash to attempt and win both the top position in the city as well as lower-level positions like the fight for the Senate and the seat for women in the House of Representatives.
Strong candidates for the various seats have been put out by both coalitions. In addition to the hotly contested battle for governor between Jubilee's Polycarp Igathe and UDA candidate Johnson Sakaja, the race for women's representative has drawn two accomplished women: Millicent Omanga of the UDA and Esther Pasaris of the ODM.
Esther Pasaris will make an effort to defend her position. ODM Party Leader Raila Odinga has given her a lot of support. On the other hand, Millicent Omanga, her opponent, is an ardent supporter of UDA Party Leader William Ruto.
According to polls done by Kenyans.co.ke, if elections had been held today, Millicent Omanga would have won the women's representative seat. The findings indicated a significant discrepancy between these two. Omanga is in the lead with 66% of the vote, and Pasaris is a distant second with 34%.
